Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Kelly Armstrong, mother of a 2-year-old son, has been missing from Kokomo, Indiana since July 2011. Family members became concerned when they were unable to reach her. A missing person report was filed on on September 26, 2011.
In February 2012, authorities charged Armstrong's boyfriend, Travis Funke, with voluntary manslaughter in her death. Funke allegedly told investigators he killed Armstrong around the first of July. Funke allegedly said he placed a plastic bag on Armstrong's head, wrapped her in a tarp and put her in a trash tote. The garbage container was supposedly picked up later that same day. Funke confessed to the killing and is now serving time for voluntary manslaughter.
Investigators spent six days sifting through 6,000 tons of trash at the local landfill but were unable to locate Armstrong's remains.
